Raindance 2013 line-up announced

But did they make a mistake in putting Julian Assange on their jury?

Review: Ain't Them Bodies Saints

Rooney Mara is fantastic in this delicate, sun-soaked Western

Review: About Time

Ever since I was a boy, I always wondered about voice-overs...

Film review: Wadjda

Every now and then, a film comes along that changes the world. Sometimes, you don't even realise it's doing it.

World War H – or hate’s not all that

What do Shyamalan, World War Z and Man of Steel have in common? Hype - and hate.

If you're an old person who used to hang around the dodgy end of King's Cross in the 1980s, you may be familiar with the iconic Scala Cinema. These days, if I want to see a film, soak up some grubby Soho atmosphere or get propositioned by a woman of the night, I have to hang around Wardour Street. It's not the same.

But all is not lost! You can now relive the crazy mix of cult, foreign and arthouse movies of Scala's heyday with Scala Forever, a season spanning a stonking 26 venues in London.

It launched last weekend and runs to Friday 2nd October, covering everything from Western double-bills and zombie all-nighters to work by Werner Herzog and The Marx Brothers.

Highlights include:


  • Marx Brothers Double Bill (A Day at the Races / A Night at the Opera) - Sunday 14th August
  • Western Double Bill (The Great Silence / Once Upon a Time in the West) - Sunday 28th August
  • Kieślowski’s Dekalog - Tuesday 20th September - Tuesday 18th October
  • A Clockwork Orange - Sunday 2nd October


We may well be offering tickets in a competition later this week (spoiler: we are definitely giving away tickets), but until then head over to the Scala Forever website and check out the full festival listings. Alternatively, read on to appreciate the awesome retro programme in full, as well as the trailer for the festival.
